Sandusky River CR 47 Bridge
Posted September 19, 2021, by Tom Hoffman

I must say I can give this modern pony truss credit since it was built on a brand new road alignment leaving the scenic Indian Mill truss bridge alone in its place. Plus this bridge has more character with two short spans and one long span. UCEBs have no character!
